    Not in Georgia but I am a PHA Mason in Florida and I would like to see us move into the 21st century like the majority of the Masonic world and share Mutual recognition ,maybe one day break the visitation barriers and take part in True Brotherly Love & Fellowship SMIB

    I am not a Master Mason, yet, but I hate how Ga is still separated. I see other jurisdictions are beginning to recognize PHA and allow visitation between PHA and Mainstream lodges. But once again, I'm not a Master Mason, yet so I don't know the business side of things yet. What are your thoughts? @2311Devil

    On another note, we are very close to one another. I live in Greensboro

    We are the same way here in Florida ... all I can say is work your way to the East then use your vote when the time comes until then we just have to abide by the current rules and regulations

    I believe it's going to be a long time before both TN & GA recognize Prince Hall masons.

    Much to the detriment of the Craft as a whole.

    I've lived in TN and GA. I've spoke with very influential masons on the topic. Just my own personal opinion on the subject.

    But it's on both sides to be honest. I don't understand why we are segregated in todays time

    My exact sentiments, brother!
    It is definitely something that should be looked into especially to keep peace and harmony among the institution as a whole. The segregation is ultimately going to be the downfall (God forbid)

    I don't exactly know, what city are you in? I'm considered in the Northeast region. Can't be that far though I'm assuming.

    I'm not so sure about TN not recognizing PH. The PH Grand Master was at one of the GL of TNs bicentennial celebrations in 2013 and I've been to backwoods lodge were members have said they would be in favor of recognition.

    They don't. http://bessel.org/masrec/phamap.htm . The map hasn't been updated in awhile but I don't think anything has changed. The celebration was probably open to everyone. I have seen a lot of Freemasons on various Facebook groups from Tennessee make the statement that TN will never recognize PH.

    Sorry I should have quoted before.
    They don't recognize each other currently, but I believe they will sooner rather than later. And When they were at the celebration in Knoxville it was my understanding that they were invited and recognized as Prince Hall Masons.
